A busy place with well cooked local and national specialties, special the pastas served straight from the small pan. Service a bit on the rough side but decent. The interior can get very noisy.

The food was very nice but the service poor and unfriendly, when the mixed stater came the waitress literally threw it on the table without saying a word. Equally, I asked for ice with my water and it didn’t come and everything felt like it...was too much to ask for! A shame because the food was nice with large portions. Won’t be recommending though due to the service.More

On a very busy street of competing restaurants, there was a small queue for this one which we joined. A group was ahead of us, waiting for a bigger table. We were waiting 5-10 mins for a table for 2 - we were not greeted...or asked how many we were - NO presence or coordination on the door. An Italian couple pushed in and asked for a table for 2 which was given to them immediately. Frustrated, I said we were also a waiting for a table for 2, but we lost the nice street position and were put in the quieter side street which unfortunately was littered with ants and cockroaches (we realised half way through the experience). We ordered 2 pastas and a salad to share. Pastas arrived at different times, the salad arrived 20 minutes after. The staff had no clue which table was which (they kept asking each other, the customers were doing their job for them). The pastas were average. The worst part was witnessing the staff see a large cockroach at the entrance and they all found it hilarious that a staff member was frightened. They were laughing their heads off about it. Ragazzi.....a cockroach in a restaurant? Get a grip. In any other country, this restaurant would be closed. The WC was also very unpleasant - extremely hot (and right next to some poor tables dining) and not particularly clean. Avoid!More

I was in Catania for business trip, and while I was there I stopped by this place. It was so good, nice and friendly staff plus it’s great location.

Good variety of Sicilian dishes for a fair price. Service was rapid and there was a good atmosphere. It’s a busy part of town which adds to the experience. Would happily go back.

Staff were a bit grumpy but the overall experience was really good. Food was really tasty. Pizza Mortadella, mezze al pistachio and gnoccho fritto with prosciutto crudo were delicious.

Great place to eat in the hustle and bustle of the city. The staff were great and the food was ace. Considering we were in the touristy area, the prices were reasonable. The portions were good. Nice flavourful food made with almost a home cooked...style. On the plus side, whilst waiting for our food, the menus sheets doubled as games to play, which helped pass the time. For €49, we got a massive sharing starter, a gnocchi dish, a pistachio pasta dish, couple cokes and couple of glasses of wine. Not bad value. I would definitely come back …More

The food here is something form a different planet. Very polite waiters with a lot of knowledge. We’ve been to quite a few places during our visit in Catania and this was absolutely the best one.

Set in a pretty lane with garlands of fairy lights. Lovely relaxed vibe and great food. All very fresh and delicious. We asked the waiter for his recommendation on the wine and he didn’t disappoint. A crisp Etna white at a very reasonable price. If...we had stayed in Catania longer than 1 night we would have definitely returnedMore

The food was fine. The service was not! Just went to eat here and we had to wait 30 minutes for our crème brule, turned out the waiter didn’t even order it. When we asked him about our food, he pretended he didn’t know about...it. Also the waiters were not friendly.More
